Reach for the skies.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am in work later but first my landlord is coming out to put skirting board in my bedroom where the alcoves were dry lined and then i can repaper and get my bedroom straight again.He is also fixing my kitchen cupboard which fell off the wall a few weeks ago.
At the moment my plates and bowls are stacked up on the kitchen table, not a good look.
So enough of my waffle and on to my card which i am also entering into the following challenges:
1.Penny Black @ Allsorts Challenge - September Challenge - Autumn colours
2.The Squirrel & The Fox Challenge - Challenge 77 - For a male
3.Fantasy Stampers Challenge - Challenge 19 - Autumn colours
4.Totally Gorjuss Challenge - Challenge 253 - String
5.Oldie But A Goodie Challenge - Autumn - i have gone with autumn colours, the image is new but the papers are very old
6.Crafting For All Seasons Challenge - Challenge 86 - Colours of autumn
7.Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 339 - Awesome autumn
8.4 Crafty Chicks Challenge - Challenge 212 - Fall

I was messing around with my camera settings last night so my sideways photo looks different is colour, the first 2 pics are more true to how the card looks irl.
Products used are:
Kraft card
Kaisercraft papers 
Distress tool
Buttons
Twine
String
Peg
Woodware stamp - Hot air balloon
Polychromo pencils
Letraset fine liner
White gel pen - Sakura
A close up of the hot air balloon.

And a sideways view.
Wish i knew which settings i used on my camera.lol.
Thanks so much for looking.
Lotsa Hugs
